Wild Honey Pie - The Beatles
Something I loved about Nowhere Boy was the use of colour throughout the film, especially how it’s applied to Julia Lennon’s moods. Traditionally, red symbolizes passion and pain - two things Julia is full of. During Julia’s ‘high points’ and ‘low points’ throughout the film, there’s a clear use of a rich, vibrant red - whether it be the set, the props, her clothes, her lipstick, her nail polish; even the lighting. Yet in the moments she is ‘stable’ or seems to have ‘calmed down,’ she’s shown wearing lighter, colours, and the scenes take on a muter tone. I love the subtlety the filmmakers used. It’s as if we the audience can follow her character development by simply observing the colours surrounding her.
[there is also a deleted scene from the film, called “The Red Room” which can be seen here]
January 22nd, 1969 (Apple Studios): After John tells Yoko, Paul, and George about having received a letter from Millie Sutcliffe requesting his financial support, George reads aloud from the letter while John conveys his derision for Mrs. Sutcliffe’s justification of responsibility - his old friendship with Stuart - and points out that Stuart didn’t even have much regard for her.
GEORGE: What’s Mrs. Sutcliffe want?
JOHN: Well, what they all want – money.
GEORGE: [reading] ”This is the last cry for help. My bank is now to the wall—“ [laughs] My ”back”.
JOHN: “Back”, “bank”. [George laughs] I thought it was “bank” too.
GEORGE: ”—as it’s been many times before, but this is the last time. Since [Stuart’s father] Charlie’s sudden death in March ’66, of my consequence of long—“ What?
YOKO: [reading] “Illness”.
GEORGE: ”—illness, I have managed to exist—“
JOHN: [withering] “Illness”? She’s an alcoholic.
GEORGE: ”—but now it is the end of the road.”
JOHN: She’s an alcoholic, you know.
GEORGE: ”I beg of you, please come if only for the sake of the boy you once knew.” Fucking hell…
JOHN: You know, what’s it got to do with me?
GEORGE: What’s it got to do with Stu?
GEORGE: I mean, she didn’t know him.
JOHN: No, he hated her anyway. [laughter] I remember at college he used to tell me so. Except for she gave him twenty ciggies a day and five bob. [pause] So I mean, it’s registered [inaudible], I’ve just got to write her and say, “What?” Or something.
